    Mark's Exhaust Contact Info

    Looks like this could be my year for an exhaust upgrade! But went to MarksPerformance.com web page and surprisingly didn't find any contact info. Can someone provide this?

    Mark's exhaust can be quiet, sorta.

    Since I was building a lite weight Vmax, the stock exhaust would never do, I needed that 30 pound weight loss. But I also wanted a quiet bike! (Call me old if you must, but i have always liked quiet machines) When I make a run I don't want anyone to know it was me. When discussing the...

    Rub mark on 170 rear

    I was inspecting my rear tire (170/80/15) and noticed a significant rub mark along the ridge of the tire on the shaft side. I don't remember anything that could have done this. I'm guessing something temporarily got stuck between the tire and the shaft. Is it possible that under load or getting...

    Happy Name Day - MARK - Apr. 25

    Happy Name Day to all the "Mark"s! As you may know, I live in Hungary. In Europe (and other places) they celebrate "Name Day" for your particular name. I never heard of this until I moved here in 2009. Yes, I'm red-blooded American, and it seems odd to me. A friend had a discussion with a...

    Mark's exhaust

    I am considering a full system from Mark's Performance mostly due to the rave reviews on this forum. I've noticed that most people have the 4 into 2 system. Does anyone have the 4 into 1? Is there any difference in performance or sound? It seems like everyone swears by Mark's so let me know...

    Balancer Shaft Timing

    I split my cases to repair the notorious second gear issue. Since getting all my parts back from Sean today, I started reassembly and came to a snag in the process. My book (clymers) says there is supposed to be a timing mark on the main drive gear on the crank and a mark on the balancer shaft...

    My Mark's Exhaust

    Well I ordered me a set yesterday. I figured I'd start a thread to document the whole experience from ordering to final tuning. Hopefully, this won't have any "HELP ME" posts, but if it does, then so be it for the betterment of the forum. First off let me tell you that Mr. Mark is one heck...

    Anyone got a pic of the crank gear timing mark?

    I can see a timing mark on the balance shaft, but I can't see one on the crank gear. The genuine and aftermarket manual I've got don't have any good pics. There is white paint on one of the teeth. I scraped it off a bit but couldn't see an indent.:ummm:

    Real Metal Turn Downs on My Mark's 4-2 This Time

    One had a good laugh at my experimenting with PVC Turn Downs among other things a few weeks back. A good number of you came to my rescue. It was an experiment and was never intended to be permanent. The Wild Ass'd Skull, Top Cover however will eventually become a reality, As It Is...:rofl_200...

    Soft luggage with Mark's exhaust

    Can I use any soft side bags,( Nelson Riggs, Tourmaster), with a Mark's Performance exhaust? I'm interested in a set up that ties the side bags to a tailbag as a unit, but am concerned with the clearance to the pipes. Any other advice/sugestions much appreciated. Thanks. Jack.

    Got Mark's Exhaust and it runs great. Might want to add jet kit or leave alone.

    Is it worth going up to a stage one? What about a Morely jet kit? I wont be doing any other performance mods after this if that makes a difference. Even though 06 Max did an outstanding job setting up the carbs and stuff I still have that itch for a little more power. Thoughts?
